WELCOME TO THE RESOURCE PAGE FOR OUR FIRST
WEEK OF PRAYER OF 2022!

MONDAY 28TH FEBRUARY- SUNDAY 6TH MARCH

During the business, the routine and the mundane, it has never been more important than now to stop and to Be Still in the presence of God. He is longing for us to hear his voice, but in order to hear, we must listen. Let's focus on being still and focussing our attention on the presence of God this week.

During the week commencing Monday 28th February, we have:

  • daily video for you to watch on the subject for the day,

  • the Prayer Room open on the weekend which you can sign up to,

  • and we have copies of the 'Be Still' book for you to delve into.​

Sending lots of love and peace as you embark on becoming more still with Jesus.

You can find more resources and notes to work through with others on the resource page.
